Nope, you're not off base at all.

Here's my setup:



The cooler usually sits on the sawhorses, but this pic was taken after I had cleaned it out and the boil had commenced.
This set up is great man haha. No need for a fancy blichmann gravity fed tier system, just attach everything to your kids basketball pole. I also have a corolla in the same color. Cheers.

Sounds like the definition of a "keeper" to me!

Well, I still boil with propane and my burner sucks. I need a new one and wanted to get the Blichmann floor burner and she shut me down.

I almost took the ring back and called off the wedding :-)

Been Quite happy with this setup. Holds all my brew day gear. I don't have to disassemble anything and just roll it out of the way when not in use.

Where do you purchase that shelving? I've seen it before. Is it Home Depot? Is it sturdy?

Yes Costco, I picked mine up for $80 on sale and they were still that price when I was there last week, at least at my costco. It is quite sturdy, It does wiggle a bit when knocked, I have thought about cross bracing the back with some cables and turnbuckles but it is not necessary.
